edTPA Community of Practice

By: edTPA Community of Practice   |   2019 - 2020

The edTPA is a performance-based teacher certification assessment that Texas is piloting through 2022. Educate Texas convened the edTPA Community of Practice (CoP), a collaboration of educator preparation programs engaging in the pilot that are committed to quality assessment implementation and change management. Here, we offer collaborative-sourced resources to Educator Preparation Programs(EPPs) and Teacher Candidates in the program.
